The S cut and I don't get a long that well, I should probably stop buying them. But the Trapez is so pretty, I couldn't help myself when my sister size popped up on Reddit.
The bra itself is made of a soft and stretchy deep merlot fabric with a dark gray cross hatch pattern. The cups are trimmed in a burgundy lace and gunmetal bows at the gore and straps pull it all together.
After sewing through the band elastic and putting pads in the cups I'm happy to wear this for now. The bra is really comfortable and soft and I do enjoy the shape the S cut gives ...when I wear the pads with it. This particular cut asks for upper fullness that I don't have. My roots are really short, everything above a certain point is muscle (which can mimic quad boob in closed bras, it's really a hassle) and I cannot fill up the top without some help at the bottom. The shape is projected and rounded and has a nice rolling hills appearance. Unfortunately, the straps are only half adjustable. I will have to shorten them soon. They are soft, thick, and not super stretchy, so they are comfortable anyway. The front is the same patterned material, the back with the sliders is embroidered burgundy. Read more 110 more words
Pretty shade of purple with grey cross hatch pattern. This is from my first Ewa order so I was guessing on my size. Its about a cup size too small for me and the straps cut in to my shoulders and back. This may be because the material seems very stretchy and I can pull it further than 35 inches if I want to distort the wires. The straps are doing the bulk of the work and the underwire slides down over time on me. The shape is nice and the gore is low, which is great for my close set boobs, its just not the right size for me.
Really pretty bra, the pattern is lovely and unique, but the band is unfortunately too stretchy. I've worn it a few times now, and it's uncomfortable due to the stretchy band, so I'm going to alter it.
This bra is justthisclose to fitting. I could alter the band down and it might be fine, but I don't sew, and the cups would probably be too small anyway. It's very pretty, shape and support are lovely, construction details don't show through clothing, has 4 columns of 3 hooks and half-adjustable straps. It even has with the cookies/cutlets/pads to correct asymetry or add vavavoom. Although some EMs come too high on the sides with straps too wide, this one is not one of those; it's extremely comfy. If this fit, there wouldn't be anything to dislike.
The band on this bra feels surprisingly loose. I have the SM Trefl in 70F and the band is much, much firmer. But the band on the Trapez is just a single layer of very thin, stretchy material, so it doesn't feel anywhere near as snug.
The cups are also too big for me, which could be contributing to my thinking the band is loose. My larger breast fills the cup close to perfectly with the removable pad inserted; my smaller breast gapes horribly. I think I need a full cup size down. Which is confusing, because the 70F in the SM cut feels like it may be ...too small for me.
A wondrously narrow gore -- it's high enough to provide some traction for the cups, but narrow enough to actually tack without mashing breast tissue. I really wish I could find my best size/cut in EM bras because no other brand I'm aware of has such narrow gores. I'm beginning to think her bras just don't suit my shape, however.
It's a very pretty bra, I love the purple and grey, and the lack of overly femme details is a refreshing change. (Cute as I find all the little bows etc, does every bra ever really need bows on them? Seriously?) Read more 105 more words
I LOVE THIS BRA! My boobs have NEVER looked so good in my entire life. (not sure why it says the bra doesnt fit; it does.)
the cups are a fairly flexible foam-lined material, the fabric is very soft.. the band is quite stretchy. wires are pretty narrow, moreso than my first Ewa bra (KM Biskopty.) but similar to my PL Charlie in the same size. it seems like the cup might be a hair bigger than my PL in the same size.
LOVES: the top edge of the cup is slightly more closed than my PLs, and feels like it give a bit more support. The apex is a little ...higher than PLs, and it seems to provide more lift for my very large breasts. In this size, the gore on the S is actually the same height as the gore on the PL style, just the top outer edge of the cup comes a little higher by the strap -- not a whole lot, just about an inch or so. The overall coverage and height of the cup and gore and all are quite similar between the 2 in this size, the main difference is the shape and lift.
i LOVE the shape! very front-and-center, no east-westing at all, very uplifted, and it even manages to give my soft, pendulous boobs a lovely rounded mound shape above the edge of the cup -- i've never gotten that.. i suppose i do to a lesser extent in my PL, but overall, this bra is the best fit i've ever encountered. it's almost too small in the cups around 'that time of the month,' but it fits very well the rest of the time.. and i get a little more cleavagey-OOMPH with the pads in the bra. aside from period week, i might actually be able to do with one cupsize down, as i know Ewa bras tend to stretch... but i like the extra support of the pads in the bottom, and with them in, this size fits perfectly.
ISSUES: 1)the straps are only half-adjustable, and i generally need my straps tightened as much as possible, or close to it. non-adjustable part of the strap is very stretchy, and though it has been reasonably comfortable through the first couple of wears, they are stretching out, and i will need to shorten the straps at some point.
2)The band is extremely stretchy.. it's made of one thin layer of VERY stretchy, though very soft, fabric. I'm already between a 36-38 band, and i feel i definitely needed the 36 (80) in this style, and perhaps could have even worn a 34 (75.), though the on-site calculator recommended me a band of 40 (90.) HOWEVER, despite being looser than i generally prefer, the band seems to mostly stay put, as it's angled to sit lower on the back, and this does seem to help anchor it. i will most likely need to alter the band though, to make this a 36KK.
3)the gore/wires poke a little at the top, as if the cups tilt into my body at the top edge. i will likely bend the wires a little to better fit my body.
4) slight orange-in-a-glass wrinkling at the bottom of the cup, (which i get with most bras,) but the removeable pads seem to stabilize this wrinkling and add a little more support to the bottom of the cup. Read more 453 more words
This is such a pretty bra, and gives amazing cleavage! I'll just breakdown a few points about the fit.
*The band is a little big. I was worried it would be, as a 60G I have from her fits wonderfully in the band. Her calculator gives me a 60FF, but I was hesitant to custom order anything until I pinned down my ideal size with her. I think the calculator would actually be pretty accurate for me for this model. I have no problem trying to make this one shorter in the band myself.
*I'll mention the awesome cleavage again! It does have removable pads, and I need to take the pad out of my larger side for the best fit.
*The profile is a bit pointy for my taste. I think I'm used to the insanely round profile of the Deco, but I don't think I would be comfortable wearing this as a T-shirt bra. It would be great under a v-neck dress or sweater or something though.
